the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of air cast carrier task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions, not just words, that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> despite his criticism that president obama has not slowed iran's nuclear ambition, mr. romney's plan isn't a lot different from that of the presidents. you can see here. the current administration has increased sanctions along with the western rorld and vowed to prevent iran from getting atomic weapons. there are also a few differences between the candidates when it comes to cooperation with israel. and the drawdown of u.s. forces from afghanistan. on the middle east peace process, romney sounded decidedly more optimistic than he did

no involvement with the release. paul ryan speaking about a moral tipping point in united states, six months before romney's 47% remark. >> before too long we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today 70% of americans get more benefit from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. you could argue that we're already past that tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center right 70/0 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30%en watt their welfare state. what that tells us is at least half of those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or their will. >> ryan's comment were part of the keynote address at a gala dinner hosted by the american spectator. that was in november 201, ten months ago, well before he was considered to be a vice presidential running mate. >>> a pennsylvania judge will let voters go to the polls without photo i.d.

-over-year gain in six years. august marked the sixth consecutive month home prices rose in the united states. let's go to cnbc's jeff cutmore, live in london. >> good morning. you know how the saying goes, if there's a wealth effect in the housing market you get the trickle down. that's what we're talking about in this segment. we've seen this number coming out of core logic. they are suggesting a sharp rebound in home prices. it looks good on paper but let's not forget there's still more than one in five american home owners under water with negative equity. what it means downstream, though, recovery in the housing market we're seeing the rental market coming off steam, slowing takeup in the rental space. baer that in mind while mortgages are still affordable. a lot of people thinking about home ownership over rental. one more to throw in here on the feel-good factor, beer sales are up. we have turned around three years of decleans. it seems americans are going out and buying beer and drunking beer. particularly from those specialty brewers. i had a look at the wine numbers just to see if they w

in the united states. and posted to youtube. but officials at the state department say that was never their conclusion adding there was no protest at all. in fact, diplomats first realized they were under at being a when they heard exploegs and saw armed men entering their compound. a quick response team was dispatched with 60 libyan militia men to try to stop the assault, but they were too late. by then the attackers already had set fire to the building where ambassador chris stevens was hiding. that account directly conflicts the description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. this was on september 16th, five days after the attack. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic e

stage. he hasn't had a face-to-face since he's been president of the united states. is this what we saw four years ago or did he have a bad night? >> i think he had a bad night. it took his staff ten minutes to get to the spin room to talk about the result. they were trying to figure out how do we? should we be candid? stylistically, it wasn't a great night for him. he wasn't crisp in his responses. he had a more difficult time than mitt romney defending and describing his policies. if you want to give, you know, give the president his due, you have to step back and understand mitt romney has spent two months every night rehearsing every answer for this very moment. he practiced hours and hours and hours. did multiple, literally double digit rehearsals to be able to practice f ts moment. the president has to be the president and a candidate. he didn't have as much prep time. he has tremendous self-confidence. some think he had too much. he thought he could walk on, play it safe and it backfired. >> we'll see what happens from here. that's what matters. we'll talk to you in a few minutes

agreed the united states should focus on crippling sanctions and consider military action only as a last resort. >> we need to increase pressure time and time again on iran because anything other than a solution to this which says -- which stops this nuclear folly of theirs is unacceptable to america. of course a military action is the last resort. it's something one would only -- only consider if all of the other avenues had been tried to their full extent. >> i'm glad governor romney agrees with the steps we're taking. there have been times, governor, frankly during the course of this campaign where it sounded like you thought that you'd do the same thing as we did, but you'd say them louder and somehow that would make a difference. it turns out the work involved in setting up these crippling sanctions is painstaking. it's meticulous. >> when asked at the debate, president obama shot down the "new york times" report over the weekend that said the obama administration agreed on bilateral talks with iran. in ohio it was no surprise that both candidates dug in their heels when the talk dr
